27 billion. this bill was nor $60 billion. that's the number that governor cuomo, governor christie and player bloomberg need. just having a vote doesn't mean much unless it's for the full $60 million. i don't know how the speakler do that if he follows his policy saying you have to have a majority of the majority. it's very difficult to get anything out of that conference, especially when you're dealing with the northeast. if the speaker can do it, fine. we've been down this path now for the last month where i've been assured time and again everything was fine. i was in with the speak with her governor cuomo, governor christie was with the speaker, i met with eric cantor a number of times and as far as i can tell he's been entire live straight with us. as late as last night he was trying to get the bill on the calendar. if this is not delivered and very quickly, republicans have no trouble finding new york when this comes to raising money and i would just say anyone from new york or new jersey who contributes one penny to congressional republicans after this should have their head
to think that could happen. if hillary clinton does run, i find it hard to believe that the andrew cuomos and martin o'malleys of the world stay in. less clear for jeb. he's kind of the idealogical, the guy who can mash the conservatives and the kind of establishment. >> the purist versus the pragmatist. >> it's not clear to me that clinton is the natural heir to the obama coalition. is she to you? >> there is no natural heir. people want you to earn it. i think there's no argument out there that she hasn't earned it. she has. and you know, i think that she has done remarkably well as the secretary of state. and who was talking about it earlier? kevin was. that when she speaks, everybody in this country listens. you know, she is a voice of authority on so many issues. and also, this is the year of the woman. >> it's going to happen. and perry, here are the two most popular figures we tested in the last nbc/wall street journal poll, boast weth were named cli. bill and hillary, their approval ratings higher than the president's. >> that said, she's an overwhelming favorite. the heir, intere

, governor cuomo and i will not stop fighting together to see that justice is done and our citizens suffering is finally addressed by this congress. >> that news conference wrapping up just a couple minutes ago. happening after governor christie spoke with president obama about the lack of a spending solution for hurricane sandy victims. here's what's some house members had to say about the failure of oufer republican leadership to bring a standing aid bill to the floor before the end of the session. this is from earlier today. >> the fact is as congresswoman lowey said within 10 days of can treeno $60 billion was appropriated. that number ended up going well over $100 billion. there is now nine weeks and nothing has been appropriated at all by this congress from the people of new york, new jersey, connecticut, long island which i represent. and the fact is that over the last five, six, seven weeks we did everything that the republican leadership asked us to do. governor cuomo came down. i was at the meeting. he met with the speaker. governor christie came down, he met with the speaker. mayor
in my speech last night. governor christie, governor cuomo, blame yor bloomberg we met with eric cantor, who by the way kept his word throughout there, and the bill was drawn. it was supposed to come up thunderstorm this morning. and last night the speaker of the house of representatives walked off the floor, didn't even give us the courtesy of a notice. he told's aide to the majority leader who told us, we end ended up telling -- so there's some dysfunction in the republican leadership. for some reason the speaker is taking it out on new york, long island, new jersey. >>> we want to continue this conversation, but i want to go to the house floor, congressman steny hoyer is speaking about it. >> we had to borrow that money, yes, just as if the dpurns went out and the temperature was at zero, you would immediately replace the furnace to keep the family safe and borrow the money to do so. yes, we would have had to repay it, and we would. thisably would have allocated $6 mill quote-unquote for a food banks to make sure that people in the richest country on the face of the earth have some s
those items are not in the house bill. the mayor, the governors, both christie and cuomo came and made sure, they itemized everything and those items were not included in the house bill. >> all right, so those are taken out. that's one good thing. we're in an environment where a fiscal cliff deal comes along and nobody's really thrilled about what they got, but we did get something that increases deficits, so people say how can we go no matter how good the cause and spend another $60 billi billion. >> emergency disaster funding have always been different. americans. and when americans are in trouble because of a national disaster, we come to one another's aids. what we were concerned about, democrats and republicans, individuals from new york, connecticut, new jersey, but we also had colleagues come from around the country, is that why change the standards now? because the standards have been the same. when katrina happened, let's do it. within ten days. $60 billion was there. when there's a small town, where there's a tornado or some other national disaster, we say let's do it. that's
. we are talking about registration, fingerprinting and in the case of governor cuomo, confiscation that he mentioned. is there any proposal since the tragedy at newtown or the 500 dead people that live in chicago this year, is there any proposal that you have heard that would have saved lives in newtown? >> to be honest with you, sean, not 100%, no, i'm not going to lie to you because i you always maintained and i think i said it last time i was on your show this is a problem that requires a multifaceted is solution to the problem. it is not just about gun control. and honestly, i don't think that this gun control measure goes far enough and i know you are not going to be happy with me for that. >> sean: want to fingerprint us and register and confiscate, you know, kate, listening they will acknowledge seems to me we have mental health issues we are not addressing. moral values issues that you can't talk about god in school any more. that s, you know, i'm surprised they can still mention it on tv. you can't talk about any of these things and if you talk about using a guard to prote
case on substance. we have all read the information that came down from governor christie and cuomo line by line, this is all about people who in dire straits who are, who have lost their homes and businesses. 100,000 in new jersey have filed for unemployment insurance attributable to super storm sandy. it is devastation the likes of which we have never seen in our part of the country. we do have support. the amendment will be offered for about $33 billion to get us to the $60 billion. >> chairman rogers will offer $ 27 billion amendment. following his amendment i will offer the $33 billion. that will make the $60 billion, the round number. i feel the assurances we had from both the speaker and the majority leader cantor are ironclad. we will proceed. this recognizes the hard ache and misery both of our states or the region that suffered which has been as the governor emphasized, at the press conference the last hour or two, it has been over 66 days. >>gregg: the bickering over the hurricane sandy aid bill continues on capitol hill. >> congress last night avoided sending the finance
delegations governor cuomo, governor christie, mayor bloomberg, we were promised this vote was coming up. every penny asked for was documented. every document we asked we gave them. we were told everything is fine. it was actually on the house website. the bill was going to be voted on. last night we started to hear that maybe it would be pulled. maybe wouldn't be held. we confronted john boehner on the floor and asked them. wait until the fiscal cliff vote is over. we'll take care of it. we were told 99% certain. no one even told us, the speaker walked off the floor. told an aide to the majority leader that congress was finished. there were no votes and they come back and told us. i'm not taking this as personal offense. i'm talking about the thousands of people in my district, hundreds of thousands of people throughout the new york, new jersey area. within 10 days after katrina, $60 billion was appropriated. nine weeks after sandy, not one penny has been appropriated. let me just make this one point. these republicans have no problem finding new york when they're out raising millions o
governor andrew cuomo has activated the state's emergency operation center. he does not want to repeat certainly the fiasco, the power fiasco that followed hurricane sandy. meanwhile, across the upper state, we're looking for as much as 15 inches of wind-driven snow. natalie, back to you. >> all right, mike seidel in buffalo, new york. thanks, mike. >>> at the airport, as mike just reported, lots of cancellations and delays on the boards. nbc's katy tur is at new york's laguardia airport. good evening. >> reporter: good evening, natalie. as you know, the day after christmas is one of the busiest travel days of the year. and now it is one of the most grueling. here at laguardia airport, more than 100 flights have been cancelled, and across new york city area airports, delays can reach nearly three hours long. across the country, much of the same, as the storm is felt from coast to coast. nationwide, more than 1,400 flights cancelled today alone. and there are fears of a ripple effect into another busy holiday weekend. so far, american airlines is suffering the most. 500 flights cancelle
could fall there. drew cuomo is urging folks to stay off the road if possible. it is wet, lever, raising the risk of falling tree limbs, making shoveling the sidewalk harder, we all know that. the storm is not expected to leave the region until tomorrow. not soon enough for millions of people trying to catch a plane for the holiday week, but they can't. more than 360 flights have been canceled so far today. now that is on top of the more than 1,700 flights that were scrapped yesterday. there are also plenty of delays, the longest at the airports in new york and boston. but people flying out of washington and philadelphia can also expect some delays. >>> same winter storm system that is covering upstate new york in snow sent tornadoes ripping through the deep south. i want you to take a look at this. this is from surveillance cameras at a walgreens. this is in mobile, alabama. you have cars and trucks tossing cars around like toys in the parking lot. >> i haven't been in a war zone but i'm sure this is what it looks like. a bunch of tin, all this stuff after the building s lying in te par
what you get. we will make lemonade out of it, i guess. >> you heard governor andrew cuomo has set up an emergency operation center. he did that yesterday as the snow totals are expected to be quite high in upstate new york. he has also warned the power companies who have been criticized for their slow response after superstar sandy that they need to be on their toes. liz: thank you anna and peter. good reporting out there. amazon topping the list of most satisfying websites to shop on. with us, shibani joshi. she has the details. shibani: amazon has been the best for a number of years. [talking over each other] shibani: not all online shopping sites are the same. thankfully, we experience this directly. we are also getting this data. online research company releasing their annual results. for the eighth year in a row, amazon is the number one online retailing sites. also, other names, you may or may not be familiar with, qvc, estÉe lauder, etc. amazon has such a wide range of goods. it is certainly an easy to use site. the losers this year, some of these i have not even heard of. nu
, a lot of work. but it's got to get done. >> reporter: new york governor andrew i cuomo set up a emergeny operation center and warned the power companies to be on their toes, after sandy and being criticized but it's not been a problem thus far. >> we talk about problems. it's busy for travelers. we have family on a plane to new york. what's the impact the storm is having on that? >> both on the road and also in the sky. we've seen a lot of salt trucks, mostly on the thoroughfares, plows are working in tandem to be as efficient as possible but some residents reporting driving at a snail's pace. >> it's slippery. you have to drive slow because you see accidents everywhere. >> the main roads were ice, averaging 15, 20 miles an hour. >> already 600 flights have been canceled today. 1600 canceled yet. as far as delays, at newark, laguardia, jfk, all 90-minute delay or less. >> bethank you. >>> we by the way will have a lot more on the winter storm and the problems it's causing. maria looks at the forecast and what is in store for travelers across the country. >>> after more than a month in th
and this bill gets passed. he has been in close contact with governor cuomo of new york. he has been talking about this with people who are concern and not only the folk who is live in new york and new jersey, but lawmakers are who are expressing anger that it didn't move through the house. they live in the areas that were most deeply affected. peter king who is from new york had harsh words for speaker boehner. speaker boehner's office released a statement saying he is dedicated to moving it through by the end of the month. we will have to see if that happens and there is a lot of pressure on him to do that. in terms of the other things they will be focused on, he still has to name a number of his cabinet positions. one of the names that has been floated, normer senator chuck hegel and he got criticism for comments he made and president obama signalled that that criticism has not dissuaded him. >> from honolulu, thank you very much. >> how is it possible that this is a political issue. we are here today and we can vote on this. the votes are clearly there. >> up next, more on the out rage o
was provided by governor cuomo, gov. christie, mayor bloomberg. everybody played by the rules except tonight when the rug was pulled out from under us. the people who are out of their homes, the people who are cold, the people who lost their jobs, they do not have the time to wait. we have responsibilities. >> the gentleman is recognized. >> i am sitting here in shock. there are americans suffering because of an act of nature. it is our obligation as americans to make sure we come to the aid of americans, and that is why on this issue democrats and republicans have come together in any kind of crisis. when it comes to natural disasters, we have always come together. how can we return -- how can we turn our backs on americans staminat? we cannot turn our backs on our citizens who need us, some who will not have a place to stay for a long time, people who suffer, people who need food. we are americans. i am shocked. mr. speaker, you have to reconsider. >> for what purpose does the gentleman from new york seek recognition? the gentleman is recognized. >> i have been a member of this body for 24
of the house was provided by governor cuomo, governor christie, merritt blob, everybody played -- mayor bloomberg, everybody played by the rules except tonight. indefensible. we have a moral obligation. the people are out of their homes, the people who are cold, the people without food, the people who have lost their jobs, they don't have the time to wait. we cannot just walk away from our responsibilities. >> and the senate had passed a $60.4 billion sandy disaster aid bill last week. the current session comes to an end today after the new congress gets sworn in. legislation does not, though, carry over from session to session. so consideration of an aid bill would have to start all over again if nothing is scheduled before then. joe? >> back and forth on this was whether it's direct aid or not, in the house they said that there were things that were tagged on. things for like aid for fisheries in alaska that they didn't want to see the aid. they want it to be aid that would go directly -- earmarks is what blew this one up. but it's kind of shocking when you realize that that was what,
of martin o'malley or andy cuomo? >> i actually think hillary clinton deserves a year to take a deep breath and not have to worry about it. she needs to rest. give her 2013. it's not hillary versus hillary. but i think she ends up running. >> who the heck knows what could happen and how things are going to shake up. >> fascinating point. fascinating conversation for 2013. we'll be right back. duralock power preserve. it locks in power for up to 10 years in storage. guaranteed. duracell with duralock. trusted everywhere. your doctor will say get smart about your weight. i tried weight loss plans... but their shakes aren't always made for people with diabetes. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they have carb steady, with carbs that digest slowly to help minimize blood sugar spikes. and they have six grams of sugars. with fifteen grams of protein to help manage hunger... look who's getting smart about her weight. [ male announcer ] glucerna hunger smart. a smart way to help manage hunger and diabetes. she also likes to ride her bike. she knows the potential for making or losing
of luck. one was that mario cuomo did not run for the nomination and ross perot did run for the presidency. we'll see them trying to find their way, but, also, circumstances out there that nobody can anticipate at this point. >> right, i do think there was an interesting thing that happened to the democratic party when it was in a similar situation and bill clinton kind of dragged the party to the center a little bit. that was a big debate and we'll see if republicans have a similar debate and names that were just up on the screen were proxies for different sides in that argument about where does the republican party go from here? i think it's more about that. what is the shape of the republican party than it is about any of the individual names. probably too early for that, but not for what they stand for. >> jerry is a little more optimistic about that debate than i am. before you can have a real debate, you have to be willing to anger some people in your own party. what is missing, in both parties on the republican side, the only ingredient is someone willing to take aside that not ever
is certainly much more than andrew cuomo and hillary clinton certainly putting their names out. joe biden is saying, yeah, 2016. maybe. >> he is not going through the ritual of saying -- he is clearly it does interest me. it's hard to -- i would separate this from presidential politics. as hard as that is for somebody like us. >> come on. it's tough. i do think this represents the fact that at the end of the day particularly in your intense dead looirn situation personal relationships do matter. two men that have been in the senate and know each other. i don't know of if i particular affection, they know each other and they know what makes the other tick. they know what the other incentives are. the personal relationships can matter. there's no question. i think it will give sort of credibility to joe biden's standing, and they will show the value of that kind of institutional knowledge and seniority. >> they say it's the deal and it's the program meter is 450,000 with an extension of the patch in amt and extension of unemployment benefits and all these sorts of things. are both sides abl
people hate congress. it's why they hate them. and governor cuomo and i are as two frustrated as two people can be, because unlike people in congress, we have actual responsibilities. and we have a responsibility to make things happen. >> reporter: tough words there. president obama joined the fight earlier in the day, demanding that the house take action to move the aid package. you can almost imagine that john boehner felt a little bit today like the last politician to get hit by an obama-christie one-two punch. that was mitt romney. >> ouch. thank you, eamon. let's get to our two special guests to kick this around. i say happy new year to both of you, gentlemen. my old friend charlie wrangle, it looks like peter king prevailed. $9 billion in flood insurance this friday and another $51 billion in relief the following friday, which gets you to the $60 billion in the senate. is this battle over and won, charlie? >> as far as i am concerned, i think it was a good day for the congress, peter king and so many other republicans that don't normally find this coalition with democrats did c
damaged by sandy, including governor christie, a republican and governor cuomo, a democrat, should be deeply disappointed and yes, angry that this congress would adjourn without addressing the pain of our fellow citizens. >> that was maryland congressman steny hoyer expressing outrage with the leaders decision to end the term without voting on aid for victims of hurricane sandy. a house committee drafted a measure to allocate $27 billion for recovery efforts. speaker john boehner says the house won't vote on it before the term ends at noon tomorrow. spokesman says the congress is still committed, though, to passing that legislation this month. >> 6:05 now. secretary of state hillary clinton is on blood thinners to treat a blood clot. she fainted and had a concussion. doctors were giving her a checkup this past sunday. that's when an mri revealed she had a blood clot between her brain and skull. doctors say it did not cause a stroke or neurological damage. clinton is expected to make a full recovery. for now, she's under doctor's care at new york presbyterian hospital. >>> in the da
're absolutely right about that. governor andrew cuomo is warning power companies to be on their toes because of this they were criticized with the slow response to get the power cut back on. many residents in the dark and the told for a couple of weeks. the governor activated his emergency operations center in the state of new york as the upper portions of the state were expected to get a whole lot of snow but for the kids at home, i will mess up my goldloves here. they're not making the best snowballs. jon: really? i thought it was, she has a good arm. >> reporter: i think i sprayed my photographer in the face a little bit with my fancy new gloves. jon: is that hat, a fox news issued hat? that is proper equipment for this weather. >> reporter: called, keeping you warm. jon: should have told the assignment desk you wanted to go to miami. >> reporter: next time yeah. pack up a bikini instead after toboggan. jon: an ney -- anna in the midst of it. harris: this is causing travelers time and money as their flight plans have been greatly altered in some cases. some can't get back home or back to
, including governor christie a governor and governor cuomo, a democrat should be deeply disappointed. >> bill: yeah i can't wait to hear what chris christie has to say about that today. >> i'm sure christie will let us know how he feels. >> bill: no doubt about that. 866-55-press. we're here on the "full court press" with arthur delaney. >> announcer: heard around the country and seen on current tv this is the "bill press show." thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? [ lisa ] my name's lisa, and chantix helped me quit. i honestly loved smoking and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. it put me at ease that you could smoke on the first week. [ male announcer ] some people had changes
: no, we're seeing lighter snow but it's still falling steadily and governor cuomo has asked people to avoid non-essential travel. here's why, poor visibility and the possibility of ice on the roads. you can see the roads here in downtown syracuse. we've seen plows coming in and out of these roads but the snow is still accumulating. what you're seeing on the sides of the road too is accumulation from this snowstorm, which is expected to dump 9 to 13 inches and also some previous snowstorms. they have had 13 inches in the last four days. syracuse officials say this area is used to getting snow. of course a big challenge is so much snow in such a short period of time. it's been almost two years since syracuse has seen a foot of snow all in one shot. >> inez, thank you. >>> a potent winter storm really socked the midwest. travel conditions were so treacherous the pacers had to postpone a game against the bulls. getting around the country today and the rest of the week will be a challenge of the meteorologist bonnie schneider tracking the system. what is the latest, especially for me, b
england states. new york's governor andrew cuomo, has opened up an emergency operations center and he also warned power companies to really be on their toes especially following all the criticism that happened for their slow response from superstorm sandy and getting power turned back on for those residents who were in the dark and the cold for a couple of weeks. our plans changed a little bit last night. we decided to spend the night in clarks summit because the road conditions deteriorated and we didn't want to go farther north. the borough president told me their snow totals were down last year and they were able to stockpile some of the salt from the roadways last year and that's what they're using for this storm. council president says they're happy this first snowstorm of the season hasn't been a major blizzard for them. >> we're on a good track this year and, you know, the weather, you take what you get. and, we're going to make lemonade out of it i guess. >> reporter: and for holiday travelers trying to make it home this weather has really thrown a wrench into their plans. a jetlin
